On a cold, wintery Sunday, after church, a stranger goes up to the minister and says, "I must confess, I came to your church to steal a hat. But when I heard your sermon on the Ten Commandments, I changed my mind."

"Oh, you mean the commandment 'Thou shalt not steal'?" the minister replied.

"No," the man said, "When you got to the one about adultery... I remembered where I left my hat."

 drumroll:  lol:

There are three matchboxes in front of you. One contains two black marbles, the second, two white marbles and the third one has a black and a white marble inside. Each box had the correct label on it until some pesky kid switched them around so that each matchbox is now wrongly labelled.

You can take one marble at a time from any box without looking inside. How many marbles must you remove to be sure of correctly identifying all 3 boxes?

One. Take it from the box marked B&W. If it's white then the other ball in that box must be white, Then there must be two black balls in the box labeled white and one black ball one white ball in box labeled black. Conversely if black the other ball in the box is black. the rest agains follows logically.
